What attendees say

As a non-specialist starting to teach Sociology I found this course incredibly helpful and supportive. The day was planned and structured really well. The sessions gave me a great insight into planning and assessment throughout the two year course. Craig and Duncan were really approachable and friendly. We were provided with lots of excellent resources which will help me to plan the course. I will definitely be attending a T2U CPD session again! Thank you.
